OPPO recently announced two new non-smartphones in China. There’s their second tablet, the Pad Air, and the latest Enco 4 Buds
First, we have the OPPO Pad Air. As you might expect from the name, this one feels really light as it only weighs 440g. Quite impressive considering that it has a 10.36-inch 2K screen.
It lacks a high refresh rate, but it does come with bezels that have a uniform thickness. There’s only a 5-megapixel selfie camera, which says a lot about which people this device is made for.
The Pad Air, unlike Apple’s “Air” tablets, are meant for the budget-conscious. One big evidence of that is the chip that powers it: the midrange Snapdragon 680 CPU from Qualcomm. It is paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
Around the back, we have a design similar to the first OPPO Pad that came out in February. Only this time, it has a less flamboyant look without the unique prints.
Oh, and we also have the single 8-megapixel camera back here. The device also comes with a decent 7,100mAh battery, 18W charging, and quad speakers.

The OPPO Pad Air retails for CNY1,299 (around Php10,200) in China. That’s for the 4GB/64GB model. There’s also a 6GB/128GB variant for CNY1,699 (around Php13,300). You can pair it with a special keyboard cover for CNY349 (around Php2,700) and a stylus that’s also sold separately for CNY299 (around Php2,300). Sales start on June 1.
